Parks won't close because of another strain of the flu. Yea, we don't have a vaccine yet, but, if you're healthy, carry on.

My guess would be that if the virus gets too widespread to the point of being declared pandemic, some of the more popular parks where people are often packed in tight quarters in some areas (think Yosemite, YNP, etc), those might consider limiting visitors, or even closing if conditions warrant it. Lesser parks probably not. But I don't think it is any where near that currently.

You may see day use areas closed before campgrounds.

Listen to medical experts and take normal precautions as you would the flu. No more group hugs, shaking hands which is a really outdated way of making sure the other guy isn’t going to shoot you. Wash your hands before you touch any other part of yourself or others. Carry some hand cleaner and use it. A flu shot won’t help you as Coronavirus ain’t the flu.

You are absolutely correct, this virus isn't the flu. They are similar, but not the same. The thing with getting the flu shot is you are much more likely to get the flu. Soap and water also seem to be better for this bug than the hand sanitizer that is sold out everywhere.

Hope there are a lot of sky-is-falling campers out there, there'll be more campsites available to the rest of us.

Wildtoad: I agree that handshaking should go the way of typewriters and land line telephones. We should do as the Japanese do and offer a polite bow, instead. Although the elbow bump is kind of amusing. [emoticon]

Compared to hotels, RV camping is the much safer option. Think about it: Not only do you have your own private living space--used by no one else!--but your own cooking facilities, toilet and shower. No reason for campgrounds to close.

x2 for these reasons, might even be busier when people realize it could be a better option for a vacation.
I remember going to FL in March after 9-11. The campground we normally went to was never more than 75% occupied but that year it was completely booked for the month. Lucky for us the neigbouring campground was just reopened after being closed for a period of time.

Went to a doctor appointment. Half the people there were wearing masks. Said to use the hand sanitizer on the way out and take a shower when I get home. He said there was a lot of FLU going around.

This is a tough situation as we are supposed to leave for Florida the end of March and the fear of a regional isolation or quarantine orders is really causing us to re-consider on a day to day basis whether to go or not.
We are also wondering how much fun we can have when most everyone has succumbed to media hyped fear mongering.
